Yesterday I was back at the Fleet Air Arm Museum for another special event – Sci-Fi Fest! This is just a quick post to tell you about it.
Last time I went to Fleet Air Arm Museum was in August 2014 for the Dalek Invasion, and I dressed as the Eleventh Doctor. This time I did my first Tenth Doctor Cosplay – I wore a blue suit, glasses and used my Tenth Doctor Sonic (which is really a pen!). David Tennant was a great Doctor, he was always finding things out as he went along.
Fleet Air Arm Museum is the national museum of The Royal Navy and houses Europe’s largest naval aviation collection. When I arrived the halls were full of Sci Fi Fans there to see the stalls and celebrity signers. There were celebrities from Star Wars along with Virginia Hey from Farscape and Chris Barrie from Red Dwarf. I was very disappointed when I found out that there were no Doctor Who celebrities there but at least there were fun things to do and see!
I met my old friend K9 – The Tenth Doctor and K9 reunited just as in the episode School Reunion (2006)! Then the Krillitanes took over a school and only the Doctor and his companions could stop them. Luckily there was no sign of the Krillitanes today but I did see a Scarecrow, Cybermen, Daleks, Clockwork Robots and the Ood!
There were many awesome Cosplayers there – here is a selection of them. They all look really cool!
First up is Sean dressed as Sergeant Benton! Sean has been dressing as Sergeant Benton for a while now as he is his absolute favourite Doctor Who character. He came second in the Fancy Dress competition – well done Sean! Sean is accompanied by his sister Lilia who is dressed as Finn from Adventure Time and they are being photobombed by a Jedi-Knight and Obear Wan Kenobear!
I met a Seventh Doctor again – I met him before at Charfest in August 2014. This time he was dressed as both Old Seveny and a member of the High Council- he said that the Seventh Doctor has become President of Gallifrey!
Here is a Classic Cyberman. This was a very polite Cyberman – that’s something you don’t see everyday! When we took a picture they said ‘You’re Welcome!’
The Scarecrow looked very realistic – just like in the show. I wasn’t scared though because I am not a crow!
Matt, Laura and Jake are dressed at the Eleventh Doctor, Sarah Jane Smith and The Master – they look fantastic don’t they? Matt is a Matt Smith / Eleventh Doctor Cosplayer and available for lookalike work – please check out his Facebook page.
Here is Hannah dressed as Osgood – Osgood was a great character, it was so sad to see her go. It is such a shame that she was killed 😦
I really enjoyed looking at all the Cosplayers and I also took the time to explore the exhibits at the museum. I went into a submarine and pretended I was on the submarine in Cold War (2013) I also saw a pilot uniform which reminded me of Reg Arwell’s in The Doctor, The Widow and the Wardrobe (2011). My favourite part was playing Battleships against myself!
Time now to say goodbye, I will be back soon to tell you the winner of the competition to win a Doctor Who Encyclopedia. Thanks for reading and goodbye!
